Base mode is nice, but ... those arms and legs still turn me off to the figure.

In the end, I still want YotS more. I could even be happy with my Energon Omega Supreme.

Looking at the picture of rocket mode and tank, what happens with the rest of the figure in this state?

Heh heh, "Red Rocket"... :-$

Thanks for the generalizations...again... >:oP



Read the thread. It's not generalizing, it's the truth. They ripped me for even suggesting a G1 add on set from Crazy Devy. "Oh it would ruin the figure" and "It's FOC not G1". Now they hear about a base mode and they wet their pants. What happened to all that FOC love ? Now all of a sudden you want G1... LMAO :lol:

Apparently you don't know what I mean by generalizations. We all didn't wet our pants. We all didn't rip you for suggesting a G1 add-on. Some of us questioned the reasoning for such a G1 add on for a clearly non G1 figure and only ripped you on generalizing and overall tone. I'm not sure about a link between G1 type arms ad-on and a basemode/rocket, either.

So, thank you again... >:oP

Edit: Oh, and those pictures are not helping my impulsive nature. They look awesome! He looks awesome! I love how they were able to get it to transform into the ship from the video game. I wonder how much, if any of it, is parts forming between bot and ship mode.

I just got Genesis in today. This thing is to WfC Omega Supreme what MP-10 (for me at least) is to Optimus Prime. It is perfectly accurate.

One issue of note is that the shoulder for the cannon arm (at least on mine) is slightly loose so it doesn't support the weight of the cannon very well when it's stretched out. I suspect I can tighten a few screws to fix that though. His elbow joints support the weight of his cannon and claw just fine.

I haven't played with transforming him yet, all I've done is pose him, rotate his turrets out and put an Autobot symbol (thanks Reprolabels) on his chest in a very conveniently shaped space provided on the mold.

If you have the means and want a perfect representation of WfC Omega Supreme, I highly recommend him.

Where is the picture of the base mode ? I see pics of him with Giant and Herc, one of his spaceship mode, and one of a rocket that looks like a big... Well let me stop right there. But I am interested in seeing how the rest of the base looks, especially what the wings are used for.

I'm curious about that myself. As I said in my last post, I haven't played with him much, I basically fiddled with him a bit, flipped out his 'wings' and turrets and posed him on my shelf. The instructions include no mention/images of anything other than his bot and base modes.

One other note, he comes with tons of plastic bits to fill in all of his screw holes. I haven't done it yet (still gotta tighten that shoulder joint as I said) but I probably will once every joint has been tested for proper tightness.

If a large enough package needs to get into space.

(Could be payload, but the puns are degrading quickly...)

NASA and the Ruskies sometimes have wider nosecones due to the satellite that needs to be put into orbit.

That Optibotimus review video was great. It looks like there is actually little in this figure that is parts forming, which is a nice piece of engineering.

I want. Not going to get it unless it is clearanced for much cheaper, but I want. :-(

That would be hilarious, though honestly I wouldn't be surprised if they did actually make a WfC Trypticon. And if they did and it's anything like Genesis, it would be perfect.

:shock: Please don't do that, Planet X. It would mean I would have to get this no matter what. And with the 30th Anniversary Generations line starting this coming fall, discretionary income is going to be tight...
